Thunder Bay (1953)



Reviews and Comments

"You lost a lot of education by going to college."

Jimmy Stewart wants a contract from a big business man to build an oil rig, but the locals, who survive on shrimp fishing, don't want the oil rig anywhere near their fishing area. It's the modern take on the old farmer/cowboy rivalry staple of westerns. And it's quite good. The new setting for the old formula, fine characters, and well built tension all make Thunder Bay good solid entertainment.
